    Voere reviews?

    Gday all,

    Long story short I have some money that I want to put toward a rifle with open sights in either 6.5 or 7x57 that's not too expensive. I want to buy a rifle to do a bit of stalking with and shooting the odd deer. I have a sako a7 in 30-06 for back pack hunting so I'm not trying to duplicate that.

    Voere seem to meet this with a reasonable price tag, I am a fan of mauser actions so that's a plus. The only negative I've really heard of them is their triggers.

    Just looking for some people's experience with them as I haven't heard much about them.

    Cheers,

    I had a Voere Titan II several years ago. First class rifle, solid and ver y accurate. Very nicely finished. .308. I was told the original voere works closed after the Chernobyl reactor accident because there was a moratorium placed on taking game under the radioactive pathway for 10 years. This finished most of the Voere sales area / market. Tghe new Voere's are made by a different new owner and I have no experience of these more recent models.

    As an aside, the correct pronunciation is "Furr-rah", not Vo-eer..

    The Titan II is a German Voere, no longer in business as you say. Mauser bought the rights and continued some of the models for a while, including the 225 (Titan II), 201 (upmarket .22 sporter) and 105 (more basic .22 sporter). I believe all the Mauser '98 based Voere's are from the separate, Austrian company and there's little relation between them.

    I have some experience with the German Voere's, but none with the Austrian I'm afraid. So this probably didn't actually help you much.

    That model uses a post-48 FN style action with the collar broached on both sides. I have seen the fancier version, the 2165, which appears to be a good rifle with significant accuracy potential (by hunting rifle standards) BUT cannot recall seeing any 2155 models.

    P.S. Voere is a made-up name, using the first three letters of Voetter's surname, so ... pronounce it however you like!

    Any German/ Austrian would pronounce it as I said. Feel free to differ

    If it is a Mauser 98 based rifle a Timney trigger should probably fit.

    The modern voere is an aluminium receiver with a bolt that locks into the barrel. They are well made , their barrels are straight, there is the option of changing barrels as it has a clamping system on the receiver like the Sauer 202, titan 2, unique, unique alpine, PGM, desert tac...
    The wooden stock is ok but made by machine with not much hand fitting. They might benefit of a little bedding job on them.
    Overall not the prettiest rifle but it might suit some.

    Oh yep they have the lbw model. Wonder if they have the other models they were talking about. I was looking at the lbw, sauer 100 and sabatti rover until a lightly used Winnie came up.

    I had a feel of the lbw today, very light with that aluminium receiver, almost too light I think. I'm getting soft as I age and no longer own magnums and prefer not to have a light kicker even in a 7x57.

    Considering the heavier 2165 which still has interchangeable barrels.
